T-Type with the black-out trim?

You are right, night cub :wow:

I can see the amber indicators on the taillights effectively making this as T-Type package.

Now as CougarTim's question is it either Buick Somerset or Buick Skylark :think:

Those wheels weren't available until 1989. The "amber" in the taillight is just a reflection. I'm going with 1989-91 Skylark Gran Sport.

Do you have any proof that support your claim, l67guy? :think:

For one, there are no T-Type emblems. The T-Types had emblems on the trunk and B-pillar trim.

Admittedly, I was incorrect about the wheels being available in 1989 first, they were offered in 1988.

In between the 1987 Somerset T and the 1989 Skylark Gran Sport, Buick offered "the Black Package" which included pretty much everything the T-Type and GS had like the blacked out trim.

Here is that car's twin. A 1989 Skylark Gran Sport. 1989 was the only year these wheels were used on the GS, the Shelby wheels were optional, in 1990 the Shelby wheels became standard.

I've owned 12 of these cars...;) T-Types, GSs, a Black Package and 2 Somerset Grand Nationals.

Apologies for taking a year to respond, I don't get over here often. ha

Interesting, l67guy :think:

According to the Wikipedia, the Grand Sport trim level was available in 1990 model year :think:

Wikipedia is also notoriously wrong. ha. The Gran(no D) Sport was from 1989-1991 on this generation of N-body. I have no idea where they got S/E and LE trim packages, those were Pontiac trims.

Buick did have a Luxury Edition trim for 1990-91, which included a vinyl roof that spilled over to the rear door (like the 1980s Chrysler LeBaron).

The Skyhawk had a SE trim, but not the Skylark.
